Different exhaust note

I'm curious if its my imagination or not, but does the exhaust note change if you switch from a 'S' to an 'E' base gasket?

I haven't done the mod, but if it raises your compresion ratio, as I've heard. I would think your exhaust note would change. Scott

it does change a little.

My S sounded a bit "thumpier" after the change. :excuseme:

if you do do this mod, what are the chances of blowing your engine?

The "Note" changes because of the increased combustion pressure!You are compressing the same amount of air in a smaller "Squish" (thinner gasket)= higher compression=more power=deeper note.
